Is this bizarro world? A four team playoff completely bones K-State and any legitimacy the Big 12 would ever have because it would be incredibly difficult for a Big 12 school to get in.

I hope like hell we get a 12 team or even 16 team playoff and they only delay it just to take the thing to the open market.

I assure you the SEC won't be bothered by how big the playoff is, they'll always get their bite of the apple first. We just hope there's enough of that apple left over for everyone else to get some of it too.

Nebraska with a 65% win probability of beating a good team doesn't endear much faith in any given formula.

I am glad we won the game and Will looked better over time... but I have to admit that I was a bit steamed when we were running the ball well with Jaren handing the ball off to Deuce then we put Will back in for the following progression.  1.) Will hesitantly up the middle behind 2 running backs for nada.  2.)  Will throwing 5 yards away from an open receiver.  3.)  Will hesitantly up the middle behind 2 running backs for nada.  I'm not too proud to say I had to walk away for a few minutes.  LOL

Classic 3rd quarter Messfense, we've seen it for 2 and a half years now.

@MakeItRain I’m going to nicnamejr’s game, which was the way I was leaning the whole time. Actually refreshing to see gE be basically unanimous here. I didn’t expect it. And wouldn’t expect it would be the same on most “fan” boards.

Anyway, back to the more interesting discussion surrounding competitive cheer. <——— not gEing

The best thing about this board is the absence of performative masculinity, the stereotypical masculinity cosplay competition that permeates the internet. Most people in their position would go and watch their kids, it's just that other places, the people feel like they have to lie about doing it. Supporting the joy of your progeny isn't a weakness, I'm glad we don't have to act like it here.

See you at Farmageddon in 2.5 weeks.

I'm pretty sure I've criticized youth football coaching as a factor in concussions on this blog, and there's definitely been talk of baseball coaches ruining the throwing arms of kids from overuse.

But I definitely don't know cheer and will defer to people who know more.

It seems obvious to me that cheer can be dangerous relative to other sports, and that poor coaching can make injuries more likely in an already hazardous activity.

Yes both can absolutely be true

100% agree, we just don't know from IC's story if the injuries are due to coaching negligence. If y'all didn't watch the video he posted, competitive cheer is much different than what you see on sidelines or courtside of High School X in 99% of schools across the country.

Over/Under snaps Lewis takes on Saturday?

two drives

I'm changing it to 1.5 drives

Under. My rationale is exactly the same as Apathy's.

Since I've completely dumped last season from my memory, how well did Will H. play last year on the road?  Night and day difference or closer to his "average"?  That probably will be the real difference in the outcome of the game, right?
Beat TCU (1 int)
Got crushed at WVU (3 ints)
Got crushed at ISU (1 int)
Lost last second at Baylor (2 ints) (iirc, had an open first down on a read option and fell down).

The fall was at TCU. Baylor was more on Mess than Howard. We jumped on them early then we went very conservative and didn't recover, awful second half, lost on the last possession of the game.

It's actually a pretty good comp. T mobile capacity is 20k.




STHs attend 20-82 games a year, no one is going to T-Mobile that many times a year. I'm pro downtown stadium for everywhere, unless it eliminates housing, but you will lose some convenience but gain much more.

It sounds like the coaches are being extremely reckless and irresponsible and putting kids in danger but I don't know the sport. Are there other, maybe less intense club options?

It isn't the coaches, it's the sport

For high school girls and college women, cheerleading is far more dangerous than any other sport, according to a new report that adds several previously unreported cases of serious injuries to a growing list.

High school cheerleading accounted for 65.1 percent of all catastrophic sports injuries among high school females over the past 25 years, according to an annual report released Monday by the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research.

The new estimate is up from 55 percent in last year's study. The researches say the true number of cheerleading injuries appears to be higher than they had previously thought. And these are not ankle sprains. The report counts fatal, disabling and serious injuries.

The statistics are equally grim in college, where cheerleading accounted for 66.7 percent of all female sports catastrophic injuries, compared to the past estimate of 59.4 percent.

That being said IC, I have a daughter just starting cheer, non competitive at this point. We're aware of the dangers and we're going to let her do it as much as she wants. She's a dancer so I hope she ditches cheer for dance but she'll make that choice. She's very tall and muscular so she won't be doing aerials, so that's helpful too.

If she's good at it and it's a spark for her, don't take it away, there's risk in everything and she won't have a lifetime of what ifs. If it becomes too dangerous for her to handle, she'll make the decision herself.
I mean, there could be a bunch of irresponsible coaches.

Anecdotally, we have a good friend who's been in high-level ballet for several years. The family poured a ton of time and money into training or whatever at the San Francisco ballet. She/they thought she was on track to getting picked up by a professional ballet in high school or something, it was basically this kid's life for the last 5 or so years.

This year, San Francisco didn't invite her back, so she ended up "stepping down" to Berkeley Ballet, and she's absolutely loving it. San Francisco was like a job, but Berkeley is fun for her - she's actually showing her parents steps she learned which she never did at SF and is just really enjoying ut.

Obviously you (IC) know your daughter's situation best, but sometimes a change of scenery isn't necessarily a bad thing, even if it's less competitive.

I know you aren't meaning to do so but chalking up cheer injuries to reckless coaching is very reductive. We don't do that with any sport, why are we doing it here? Of course there are going to be some knuckleheads, like with anything else, but cheer is a very dangerous sport. I mean we're talking about quickly stacking and unstacking bodies and throwing and catching humans.

That being said there are very real and deep seeded issues with cheers governing body, they have the ability to make the sport safer on and off the mat but they refuse to do so.

Would you skip your kid's 6th grad fball game (I've never missed a single game in like a gazillion games, btw. well, maybe like some indoor soccer game or something years ago) to watch the Cats play OU in two weeks, especially if we're still undefeated?

I'm 95% to a decision.

2011 CF3 would go to the Cats game. 2021 CF3 would go to the 6th grade fball game. I have had to miss kid stuff (soccer games, piano stuff etc) for work a few times, but that's life. I did skip a lil CF3 basketball game a few years ago to attend a Chiefs playoff game. It wasn't a big deal to lil CF3 but I probably would choose to skip the Chiefs if it happens again.

Anytime I have missed a game or an event, I ALWAYS do a special time with Dad afterwards. A dinner, an arcade, a trip to the zoo, etc. So if you do go to the Cats game, give nicname jr plenty of extra time afterwards.

Good suggestion. Ty

Go to the kid's game, man. You're going spend the whole time thinking about how he's doing then more time convincing yourself you did the right thing by not going to his game. If he did something awesome and you missed it you'll hate that too. I missed one of my daughter's soccer games ever, it was for work, she got her first hat trick.

Go to his game, watch the cats game with him after, come up to Manhattan to farmageddon and mock flood aggie fans.

dodged a bullet there. wow. His record lately is not good. Didn't he turn down offers from other places too? Or maybe i am not remembering that right.

Graham Harrell's career track is the most fascinating part of this saga.

Yeah, I'm getting anxious just thinking about trying to drive in NYC. T's & P's.

It's fine. Everything moves slowly so that helps, the multitude of one way streets is the biggest issue.

WRONG

That's a fun stat.

Also, without looking at the numbers (and wondering how Wes Miller will do at Cincy), I feel like the nu nu B12 will be a really damn good bball league, minus UCF.

(hilarious for me to say with how much crap K-State has sucked the last few years)

It's been talked about I think in another thread but yes, it should make the basketball be even better. Texas hasn't done really anything or the better part of a decade, and now that Lonnie is gone at OU, like, I'm kinda not joking, does either school even care about basketball anymore?

Texas has the best college basketball coach in America.
